I've finished making several videos and used speech-to-text to add closed captions. Where I was able to produce earlier versions of the same videos as desired, now I'm have difficulties producing these updated videos to display a tool bar/buttons at the bottom to view/hide closed captions. I understand the ability to "burn-in" closed captions so they always display (as I've done for the attached image). But, I want the user to have the ability to choose whether to show or hide them using a button.

what you want is closed captions that show below the video

just make the height of the project dimensions greater than the video's size

I may have a tutorial; let me look for it

OK, maybe look at this ...

Something wrong with your video.

Playback on both Firefox and Chrome it hangs at about the 1:58 mark.

Download of video also fails at about 50mb.

Thought you might like to know

thanks; I see what you mean; I'm uploading a fresh copy; issue seems to be a SC.com upload failure issue; same file set plays just fine when hosted elsewhere

I'll advise when new copy uploaded

OK, try this version ...

@Kayakman plays fine now and yep OP was asking how to turn captions on and off  ie; button on controls bar.

@Matthew,

I don't use captions much but I am starting to check them out more as it seems that this may be the way/trend video is starting to go.

That said, in Camtasia  from what I tested you need to produce your video with the smartplayer option and use "Closed Captions" for the CC button to be preset in the player controls bar.

The produced folder with the video and all the other files than has to be uploaded to your host (or screencast.com)  and  the video played by way of the HTML page.

To play locally you can just drag and drop the HTML file on to a browser to play.

Just playing the video in windows media player will not show the captions unless they are "burned in" thus no option to turn them on or off.
